IMPORTANT Information for clients of the Georgina Community Food Pantry:
In an effort to help #flattenthecurve, you will no longer be able to come to the pantry to pick up your food. We will be preparing food hampers that will be delivered to you.
To schedule a delivery, please call: (905) 596-0557 or text: (905) 244-0866.
We will schedule a delivery time with you. You must be home between the specified timeframe to receive the delivery. You will receive a call from the driver to let you know that your food is being dropped off at your door.
We will maintain this process until further notice.
Please rest assured that we will do our best to continue to provide you with food. We want to thank you for working with us during this time of uncertainty.
During these scary and uncertain times, Georgina has really come together.
The Town of Georgina challenged the community to raise $25K. In return, they would match it. In only two weeks, our community raised over $67K. For a grand total of $92K!
We are so grateful for each and every one of you. So many companies, organizations, and individuals stepped up to the plate - and hit it out of the park!
Due to YOUR generosity, we are able to continue to achieve our mission and provide nourishment to the (growing) population of those facing food insecurity.
A special "Thank You" to the Town of Georgina for their faithful support of our organization and our community.
Vision: A community where all residents have secure access to the food required to ensure a complete and nutritious diet.
Mission: Strive to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity and strengthens community.
Last year, we provided food to more than 10,000 people. Of which, 34% were children.
We distributed approximately 140,000 pounds of food to our community members in need.
Year over year, our fresh food program continues to expand, providing people with access to more produce.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality.
Submit your email address below to tell us that you are interested.
We're excited to have you join the team!
ITEM OF THE MONTH
Although all staple items, especially our "High Priority" ones (listed to the right) are necessary, sometimes there are individual items that's demand outweigh our supply.
This month item is cold cereal. A healthy breakfast is the best way to start the day!
Here is a list of the Pantry's current high-priority needs:
We could not have any success without the hard work of our volunteers. Pictured here is Claudia Hollows and Elaine Bailey (left to right standing). These wonderful women took the time to share stories of their family home during the 2018 Annual House Tour.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
